The Rolling Stones: 50 & Counting Tour

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Im so bad. I can't believe that I haven't shared this!
As part of our anniversary celebration (you know, back in May- oops!), I was able to score (literally-- I was able to get the $85 Fan tickets!) to the Rolling Stones 50 & Counting tour!
CL has been a lifelong fan of the Rolling Stones, and this was on his bucket list of shows to see, and when they announced their tour and there was a show in San Jose of all places, it was meant to be. When I told him that I was able to secure tickets, we were both super stoked! Then the waiting began!
The day of the show seemed to drag on, we carpooled and headed home after work and quick let the dogs out and changed before heading up to catch the train to the  HP Pavilion (which is now the SAP Center). 
Since we bought the fan tickets, we did not know where our seats were located until we got there, checked in and recieved our envelope with the tickets in them. We were so nervous- they could be in the pit, in the nosebleeds, anywhere. To our suprise, we opened the envelope to see this:
 ROW 1.. as in front row!
We quick located our seats (amazing!) and grabbed something to eat. CL didn't want to drink as he "wanted to take the whole thing in". He's so cute!
 Basically, im about to post a ton of photos and say that it was, hands down, the best concert i've ever been to. No lie.  John Fogerty and Bonnie Rait came out and played a few songs, as did one of the original members of the Rolling Stones, Mick Taylor.
We both really enjoyed ourselves and are so happy we had the chance to see them before they stop touring or kick the bucket.. we weren't sure what was going to come first! haha.
If you ever have a chance to catch them live, GO, you won't be disappointed!

My 28th Birthday!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Well its been well over a month, but my 28th birthday was just as special as I coud have imagned it to be. It was the first real celebration since we have been in California, so it was a little weird just being the two of us, but Colby made it a really great day.

We spent the morning opening gifts and funfetti waffles. 
We really didnt have any plans for the day so we went and hung out at the pool. It was a beautiful day and it was actully pretty quiet. I guess people here don't really celebrate the 4th like we do back in Texas. Who knows.
That evening we had dinner reservations at Quattro at the Four Seasons Silicon Valley at East Palo Alto. I thought it was funny that the restaurant at the Four Seasons in Austin is Trio and this one was Quattro.. 3.. 4.. haha get it? 

Dinner was delicious and I even got a pretty dessert with a candle.
After dinner we headed to Shoreline Amphitheater to listen to the San Francisco Symphony and watch fireworks. I hate using the word shit show, but it was. There were SO many people both in the amphitheater and the surrounding area that it was a mess.
the music was beautiful and the fireworks were stunning. Something about fireworks just never get old. 
It was a beautiful day and I know that this will be the best one yet! Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes!

goodness. where does the time go? i keep attempting to post but in the midst of being super busy doing nothing really, I just haven't had the time. 

I will however promise that i will catch up on my 28th birthday, and CL's 30th birthday weekend in vegas- soon. i will say that it was a great time. 

we have almost been living in california for 8 full months now. i can't believe how quickly time flies. i feel like we have only scratched the surface and and i feel so blessed that we get to continue this adventure. i will say i've learned a few things about northern california/californians that are way off; ahem:
- NorCal: "omg it's so hot out" Me: "no, its 85. shut your dirty mouth."
-Whataburger > In-N-Out Burger. Hands down.
-there are no breakfast tacos, anywhere.
-no one, i mean, no one can drive here. it's worse here than houston or austin. no lie.
-people out here are all extremely self-absorbed. everyone thinks they are the next big thing. and its annoying. just because you live in the silicon valley doesnt mean you have a hand up on being the next zuckerberg.

and yeah.

i figure since i only posted once in july, im already doing good with one post for august! especially since i need to catch everyone up vegas!
